2023 Holiday Schedule Update

University operations at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus will be officially closed from end of business on Friday, December 22, through Monday, January 1, resuming Tuesday, January 2. 

Those employees with clinical responsibilities and other essential functions requiring them to be on campus during that week will receive equivalent administrative/holiday leave prior to the end of the fiscal year on June 30, 2024. We are thankful to those who sustain our essential campus operations year round and encourage you to take this additional leave at a more convenient time, in coordination with your supervisor.

Refer to the FAQ section at the bottom of the page for more information.

Important Notes

Anschutz Medical Campus: Holidays observed by units specifically serving the Anschutz Medical Campus and its schools and colleges. If employees have critical clinical, research, teaching, or other responsibilities that require they work a given holiday, they will be given an alternative day off.

Consolidated Units: Consolidated units serving both campuses remain open on campus-specific holidays. Each employee will request either the Denver Campus or Anschutz Medical Campus holiday schedule for the fiscal year. Typically, if the employee has a primary campus, they select that campus holiday schedule. Employees should indicate their holiday schedule in the Employee Portal under: My Info and Pay > My Leave > Preferences > Holiday Schedule.

For more information and guidance on administering holiday leave, reference Administrative Policy Statement 4018: Holidays.

If you have any questions, please reach first out to your school/college/administrative unit HR Business Partner; some campus units use tools other than My Leave to record time and leave, so they are your first source for questions on leave entry.
